On Christmas, one of our good young friends from Mexico joined us as he usually does for our Christmas (and other family) celebration dinner. He surprised me with two little beauties! He found them in a southwest Phoenix area Thrift Shop, 75 cents each! He didn't need them, but immediately thought of me because they looked old and actually do have some age to them. The one with the badge is an "Imperial" and the other is marked "Stainless Made in Japan", but it wasn't made there recently! I think they're cool and will go into the shoe box of knives that mostly came from my dad when he was a cop, but sadly the real good ones from that period are long gone now!
